Interview 8: Saving Concord Pt Lighthouse

Interviews, Local Residents, Museums

From their home on Market Street, Jane could see the Concord Point Lighthouse. It was a sad, broken part of the community’s history at that time. And she kept telling herself, “I should care what happens to that piece of history.”

This interview was re-created from an interview with Jane Jacksteit published in the Lockhouse to Lighthouse publication. Since this week we’re chatting about museums, I hope you’ll feel inspired to take advantage of the Summer Museum Adventure (June and July) and visit as many museums as possible. Many people with the passion that Jane shares are how they all came about. Add the hundreds of volunteers over the years and you have a real community effort.
